Pottery Wheels / Shimpo / Shimpo RK Whisper

Shimpo RK Whisper

RK Series feature Shimpo’s brushless Direct Drive no belt system.  It is an infinitely adjustable drive that multiplies torque automatically.  As speed is reduced at low speed throwing, torque is increased. 


The motor is electronically controlled and operated by a fixed foot pedal and hand lever.  Unique design allows the full rated power to be transmitted without gears or sensitive electronic control circuitry at speeds as low as 1 rpm for decorating.


The RK Whisper features clockwise or counterclockwise rotation with 12½ aluminum heads drilled to fit most bat systems.  Quiet, smooth, and powerful.
